According to SEN it's four ribs, lacerated spleen and a hole in the lung. That's a long stay on the sidelines. 

We've got the bye which will help, but the spleen and lung will likely heal in that time, and the ribs are going to be painful, but not impossible to play with.
He might miss the Nth game, but equally wouldn't be surprised to see him named either.

Take a look at the incident carefully and I don't think there is much doubt that Moore deliberately put his knee "hard" into tracs back.

Obviously learnt that from that [censored] Mason Cox.

He certainly flexed his knee forward unnecessarily as he jumped from behind, no duty of care at all. It’s a wonder it doesn’t happen more often.

Are you a doctor?  3-12 week recovery according to this site.

Also life threatening.  He should not have been sent back on if the doctor saw the incident on TV as it was right into the spleen/kidney area.

We had 2 years when Burgo was at the club where this stuff didn’t happen (injured players being sent back on).  But it was a regular occurrence pre 2020 and post 2021.

Another “football act” by The Filth. Putting a player in hospital.

Get well. Soon Tracc.

Nope, but you don't appear to be either with your internet diagnosis. 

A lacerated spleen <> ruptured spleen! So, before you go all dougie howser on my comment, he's in hospital, they will make the call with our medical staff and bring him back when he's ready. I'm not saying he will play, and I still won't be surprised if he does, but tell me where I said we should risk him or his health?

Also I call bollocks on your last comment. Burgo would have NOTHING to do with assessing player injuries in a game. He was high performance manager, and fitness, not the doctor! so pull your head in before attacking other people!

EDIT: I also didn't make any reference to whether he should have played on, he obviously shouldn't have.

I believe this happened in central Victoria last year in a juniors comp. The kid received a hard tackle, went off, went back on and collapsed, went unresponsive and died. This could of been a lot worse. Hope Trac gets and feels better soon 🙏

Every decent defender should be making their opponent feel it in a marking contest, it's exactly the same thing Maysie does whenever he gets the chance, and rightly so. It's just really unfortunate that Moore's knee caught Trac in the worst possible spot.

How the hell did he get back on the field.  Crazy. 

Could be out for the remainder of the H&A?

Lets hope there's no complications.

All the best son ✌🏼

I feel for Trac, the lacerated spleen is a concern and more like a car crash injury and he would have been in some serious pain and I cannot believe he actually went back out to play. I would be surprised if it wasn't season-ending.

And before you jump on me, I have years of experience working in a trauma setting. Without knowing the medical notes all I can say is the spleen is tricky and a serious injury. It contains lots of blood and its healing time varies and it is slow to repair. 

From a reputable medical journal "Avoid strenuous activities that could re-injure your spleen. These include lifting, jogging, aerobic exercise, and contact sports. Get plenty of rest for 2-3 months."

Let him rest and fully recover and time to blood some kids.

Are you a doctor? If not, you’re not qualified to make this comment. Players go back on with rib pain regularly from my experience. 

And Burgo isn’t and wasn’t a doctor.

Regardless of all that, hopefully Trac is OK and recovers well. In the meantime, for any game he misses, we get a good opportunity to try someone new, but we’re also [censored].

The comp thinks we are soft targets

We play too nice. No mongrel. Think May's ribs, tracc, Brayshaw, May's cheek from Hawkins.

Thats the season done. Rest up and recover Trac.  Your health is the priority. Time to perfect more recipes apart from just meatballs.

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
